The Power of Window Design

The architectural importance of window design in your mountain home



When building a mountain home, windows are one of the most important considerations in the overall design, because they determine how the home will relate to its surroundings, from the amount of sunlight the windows provide to the vistas they frame.

Windows are also an especially powerful way to accentuate the design style of the home, by carrying out the vision for the home beyond just the furniture and appliances. Aluminum window frames reflect and enhance the sleek feel of a contemporary home, while wooden window frames speak to a more rustic or traditional style. Or consider bi-fold doors, which double as windows when closed, and altogether blur the lines between interior and exterior space.
